Also, do the Decor8 of course. Pin Libraries and Computer and Task Manager and such to Start. Clean out the superfluous html and help and other unneeded files from All Apps as well as Start. If you do the Windows 8, do it right.
I also just bought a Dell Latitude 6430u..which is going to become my new primary laptop for work and to carry home with me daily. I am far, far, far more excited about this new device than I am the Surface Pro.
The Surface Pro shipped yesterday from Microsoft. I got the touch cover keyboard a few days ago.
I got this from another site, observations from the younger generation.
. I got the Surface pro 128 Gb recently, and after installing all the necessary programs I realised that the 64 Gb with an SD card would have been sufficient. That being said I am an aerospace engineering student graduating in 2 months, and after getting this device I have to say wow, I wish I could go back to 1st year and use this device to its maximum abilities.I don't have to carry a single note book now because, I can get E-books, use onenote to take notes and take notes in class, even equations thanks to the pen (try typing equations in), I got my essential engineering programs I need.
A friend missed class? No problem send the notes you took on onenote (onenote MX is free too!!). Best of all I commute for 1-1.5, and having this change into a laptop on the bus is just great.
Although I must say I do have a pretty powerful Desktop at home and is my primary machine.
Apple is leading hardware sales to students, they are the ones dishing out $1000s for these macs that they dual boot windows onto. Microsoft you have the a students best friend advertise for it, seriously!!!!!!!!
So she's seen with the latest and greatest iPhone but generally uses a Blackberry when no one is looking!!! LOL
The new Blackberry is apparently very good.
Keeping control of the price will be tough for them.
Not clear to me yet how they would like to position it.
What was interesting (here I go again) is the two versions of BB10 being offered - one with a physical keypad and another touch. Apparently they (RIM) did not wish to alienate their existing user base that preferred a physical keyboard.
They aren't able to leverage to any kind pof monopoly power - and I don't think they have a budget of billions. Not easy for them.
MS have both , and they still couldn't make much of an impression. They should have been able to - if the product offering was any good.
Blackbery might have a decent product offering - but how are they going to get it to fly?
They need to get a top marketing guy/gal in this field.
